Roadway embankments on warm permafrost problems and remedial treatments / D. Esch.

Title: Roadway embankments on warm permafrost problems and remedial treatments / D. Esch.
Author(s): Esch, D.
Date: 1988.
Publisher: Trondheim: Tapir Publishers
In: Permafrost. Fifth International Conference. August 2-5, 1988. Proceedings. (1988.), Vol. 2.
Abstract: Monitoring eight experimental road embankment sections constructed on warm (0 to -1°C) permafrost in interior Alaska have provided basis for design-life permafrost predictions. Remedial features evaluated included insulation and peat layers, toe berms, air convection cooling ducts, thermosyphons, solar screens and geofabric reinforcement. Concludes most problems are result of excessive net warming of side slopes.
